    Lightbulb Parisa DeFaie (Iranian Actress)

    On a rainy Friday afternoon in Tehran, 6 yr old Parisa, dressed herself up as a queen and gave a speech to her people, encouraging them to fight against the enemy. The tears running from her eyes, she expressed her love for the people of imaginary land…..and that’s when her talent for acting was revealed.

    She was a quiet child, observant and sensitive. Parents were astonished by the many facial expression she demonstrated while expressing her feelings. Always known to be “more than her age” and extremely mature. Being the first child to Shohreh and Hormoz DeFaie, she was loved and adored by those around her.

    At school, she was a popular friend, loyal and everyone’s confidant. Her only favorite subject in school was Farsi Literature, and writing essays. She wrote the most elaborate and detailed stories or adventures, and would turn them into plays. Gathering friends and cousins to act them out…and she always had the Leading role.

    Being aware of this talent, Parisa was enrolled in Kanoon Parvaresh theater work shops. However was never allowed to participate in any plays performed for the public. The Islamic Revolution in 1979 caused all the theaters and workshops to close down. Parisa continued her adventure through her writings her vivid imagination was transformed into plays and monologues, and with a group of her friends she brought her stories to life.

    In 1984, she wrote and acted in a play called “ Roosaryeh Abee” or “The blue Veil” which was performed in Siavash middle school in Tehran. Her political views and ideas were illuminated through the characters and their words. The story was about a 13 yr old girl wearing a blue veil and her attempts to break free from it. The Blue Veil was never performed again….and the school changed the mandatory veil uniform from blue to gray.

    In 1990, parisa and her family moved to U.S. Her departure started a new chapter in her life. While struggling to adapt to a completely different language and culture than her own, Parisa found a common ground…Stage! Along her academic classes she discovered a little theater with a small stage in the college she was enrolled at. Parisa received her major degree in Communication and minor in Theater.

    Her marriage to Farinoosh Roohparvar and giving birth to two children, were major turning points in Parisa’s life.



    “My children are my paradigm, I learn by observing them….they have the most honest way of expressing their emotions”
    After the birth of her second child, Parisa continued studying theater and appearing in plays and Independent features in San Francisco. A favorite actress to many Directors, she completed many features, including The Unwilling which will be released in summer of 2006.

    Today, she studies the craft of acting at the Howard Fine Acting Studio in Los Angeles.

    Tell us a little about your background and where you grew up?

    Parisa Defaie: I was born in Tehran. I come from a small family. I have a younger brother, and we were both raised in Tehran. I spent most of my teenage years in Dubai, where my family resided a few years after the revolution. Soon after I finished high school, in search of a credible college, we moved to Budapest, Hungary. Meanwhile, my relatives were trying to help us relocated to U.S. In 1990 we became the lucky winners of the U.S residency lottery. With the help of my aunt and uncle we moved to California and started the new bitter/sweet chapter of our lives.



    PM: What attracted you to the Arts and how (if at all) did your family influence your decision to make acting your profession?

    PD: According to my parents I was always a quiet child, but very observant. For as long as I remember I loved to read and write stories. I received many books for my birthdays and Norooz, besides the ones my parents provided me. Most of the stories I wrote were inspired by the books I read or events that happened in our family circle, with a touch of my own imagination. These elaborated stories eventually turned into adventures and plays. I even wrote monologues and performed it for my parents, whom recognized my potential in Art and creativity. Acting was far from our minds; I was encouraged to write more often. Therefore my creativity was flourishing through my stories, and interesting characters I created. My decision to study film and theatre was directly related to my fascination with this type of art and expression. My family supported me unconditionally. I remember my parents sitting in their car waiting for me to finish editing my projects in the midnight hours. Attending every performance in college and assisting me in any way they could.



    PM: Tell us about your first role and how it felt to do it?

    PD: My first role in theatre was a young widower, based on Van McBride’s book named Echoes. A series of Monologues and Ensembles. The Play went on for One month, every Thursday through Saturday in San Francisco. The popularity of the play increased as we performed every week, and towards the end of the month, the show was sold out! In theatre you have no room for error, and the feedback of the audience is immediate. We had time to rehearse for a full month, but no matter how prepared I was I would feel the “butterflies” in my stomach before each performance. I still get them to this date. Once I enter the stage, there is no going back!!

    It was after one of the performances that I met the director of my first Independent movie “ Unreal”. A story about a schizophrenic man who is framed by his wife. I was offered to play the role of Sera, the twisted and troubled wife which was quite challenging. That was the start of an exciting journey that still continues.



    PM: You have had so many different roles. Do you prefer a certain medium and why?

    PD: They are both rewarding and challenging in their own way. However, I have more experience in feeling the excitement of going on stage and transform into a role. I tend to connect with the audience more when I am on stage. And as for film, I have always tried to be as truthful as possible, so that my emotional honesty is translated well on to the screen.




    PM: Where do you find inspiration?

    PD: My family, friends everything and everyone around me. I absorb every encounter and record them mentally. And I do re- visit them occasionally. My memories of the events work like a treasure box. Each time I open it I find something valuable. Acting is not just about memorizing lines, but knowing HOW to deliver them. The script gives us countless information besides the story and dialogue. It’s our job as actors to understand the character and circumstances, analyze every line and access our emotions proper to the situation. That is precisely why I call acting a “mental and emotional Aerobics”.




    PM: What is your next project and what other things are you working on?

    PD: My next project is called “Diagnosis Determined” a feature based on a true story. I play the supporting role of a Doctor. We will start shooting in February, and meanwhile I am co-writing a stage monologue based on the distorted perception of western world toward Middle Eastern Women. I am expecting a busy and exciting 2007!



    PM: You were born in Iran. What is your favorite part about Iran and its rich culture?

    PD: I remember everything about Iran, and there is still so much that I have not seen. I vividly remember our trips to “ Veresk”. I used to sit and wait for the train, which crossed the tiny railroad bridge located in between two tall mountains. I remember the beautiful scenery and friendly people of the village. My favorite holiday was Eid e Norooz. Shopping for new clothes and visiting my favorite shoe store “ Kafsheh Bella”. And then of course setting up the “Haft seen”, “saleh Tahvil”, and the smell of brand new bills. Or waiting to get out of school so we could visit the old man and his wooden cart selling “zoghal akhthe”. I loved the winter days in Tehran, particulaty the days school was announced closed due to heavy snow fall and….I could go on forever!!! Sometimes I tell my kids about Iran and my childhood, our rich culture and the importance of keeping our heritage. I am proud to say that they both speak Farsi fluently and as time goes on they will understand more about their culture and its magnificence.

    PM: Desert Island. Three things. What will you take?

    PD: A good book, my sunscreen and a picture of my family!
